The Ancient World Digital Library (AWDL) is an initiative of the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW) at New York University. AWDL will identify, collect, curate, and provide access to a broad range of scholarly materials relevant to the study of the ancient world.

With NYU's Digital Library Technology Services (DLTS), AWDL is developing mechanisms to digitize, preserve, and host digitized print and born-digital scholarly content. We are actively soliciting partnerships with publishers, scholarly societies, organizations, and individuals who hold the rights to scholarly content as we expand our collection.

For additional information related to AWDL, DLTS, or other ISAW digital initiatives, please subscribe to the ISAW Library Blog and/or contact David M. Ratzan, Head Librarian, ISAW.
